also unveiled the CB4X Concept. The experimental machine – developed
under the theme of ‘fun seven days a week’ – blends elements of Sport and

of the Honda Wing. The fuel tank hunches forward, like a cobra ready to attack
its prey, while the screen is fully adjustable and integrates into the fairing.

underpins the short, sharp tail while the 17-inch front wheel maximises
steering precision. The Honda CB4X is an idea dedicated to those riders who
live for sports riding – but don't want to give up the possibility of relaxing,
two-up travel experiences whenever or wherever.
